Here in the heart of the Texas hill country, you can find plenty of fascinating people and places. One such person is local luthier Neil Peterson. Mr. Peterson makes fine acoustic guitars, each one with a unique story, rich with living history from this beautiful country. Peterson Acoustics are all made with reclaimed woods, so no two guitars are ever the same and each one has its own unique character. This particular piece is a D-100 dreadnought made in 2016. The soundboard is recycled Longleaf Pine from a barn in Virginia and the back, sides, and neck are made from reclaimed Longleaf Pine floor joists from Master’s Feed Store in Boerne, Texas which was originally built c.1865. The fretboard, headplate, and bridge are all made of Bolivian Rosewood; the nut is bone and the saddle is Tusq. The guitar gets an elegant touch from the Cocobola binding and added class from the 510 Gotoh tuners with Bloodwood knobs. The instrument feels great in the hands and the action feels very comfortable and easy to play. With Pine being a softer wood, this guitar has a nice neutral and balanced tone with great warmth from age. The sound has a smooth, mild character that resonates but does not overwhelm; in this writer’s opinion it would make a fabulous guitar for a singer, as the sound would compliment a voice rather than drown it out. Mr. Peterson puts a personal, loving touch on his guitars and it shows in the hands and the ears; a fine Texas guitar through in through. Ships in a TSA hard-shell case.
